I am so in love with ecomama!! The staff is so stellar; they talk to you like you're already friends and they're really knowledgable when it comes to giving you info about events, sights, etc in the city. The atmosphere is super open concept and chill and the layout of the place sincerely makes it easy to meet others! Kitchen is amazing and a fully stocked beer fridge for a euro per beer :D People I met there are so insanely friendly.. I just have no more words - go there :)

I loved staying at Ecomama. I'll definitely come back again. I love the kitchen area, and how it's so open and spacious. The staff was so courteous, they made plans for a pub crawl and a night in. I stayed in the 8 bedroom, my only thing was the mosquitoes that come in from the canal. It would be cool to install maybe some insect repellent. And maybe more powerpoints.

I was in the private booth, which was literally a box as it had no window, it was still great to sleep, as there came no light inside . The private cabins were in the middle of the hallway next to the kitchen where the noise and music, starting at 7am ( kitchen ) and going until 2pm ( guests talking ) . This problem would be mitigated with a policy of silence at night or the completion of the kitchen wall to the ceiling . Location was great, walking : 10mim to...

I slept in the "kind of" basement where they have the cheapest beds. There are some toilets pipes (from the upper floor toilets) that are still exposed in the ceiling. Water rushing through them was audible and I felt like being splashed by water in sleep. I had no bed locker; used the common locker. Besides that, it is a clean, quiet and safe place to stay.

Easily our favourite hostel in the world. Fantastic facilities, open plan & ultra modern. The staff are amazing, super knowledgable and down to earth. They don't just run the hostel, they get involved; whether it be having a drink or coming on a pub crawl (looking at you Craig) they will show you a good time. The dining/ chillout space (teepee) is awesome. The only thing that I would change is possible a skylight into the private rooms & maybe some more sound proofing. Love Ecomama!

We had a cabin room downstairs, was nice but really basic considering to the price... all our staff ( dresses, jackets.. had no proper space in the room, so you have to leave on the sofa.. Bathroom really dirty and no cleaning since the morning, so imagine during the afternoon or night.. The staff was very polite especially Patricia!! I won't back until i'll find a cleaned bathroom...

Very new well run hostel. It should be noted that the basic rooms are very basic, no lockers and only a few power points. This didn't bother me to much but.

Ecomama was such a great place to stay! The staff is super helpful with getting you to the real great places. We stayed in the private room, which was spacious and totally shut out all noise. Location is good because it's only a short walk to anything major. The overall place has an amazing vibe to it, a very unique place. I would definitely stay here again!

An excellent hostel experience. The staff are truly wonderful. Their explanation of the facilities and the area when you arrive is the best customer service I've received in a hostel. It's a new accommodation and they're definitely doing everything they can to impress. Lots of social activities to join in if you are so inclined. Thanks to the team.
